This is me. Going through the motions. Start writing. Get the fingers walking. Hmmm... tell you about our trip to Lowe's to by bathroom stuff for our super bathroom makeovers? OH BOY! The funny part of that trip was running into an Australian rugby player, now 60, in the paint aisle and lamenting together our physical inability to play the game any longer. He was wearing a really cool jersey with a number one on it. In soccer, that's usually the goal keeper and in rugby, the position is actually called the Hooker.
So, in my charming way, I say to him, "With that jersey on, you're either a 'keeper or a hooker!"
To which he smiles brightly, and in a mild Aussie accents says, "Actually, I'm a number 8!"
That's another position in rugby. So we begin our talks about the great game we both used to play, and why it hasn't caught on here in America. For those of you that don't know, I played rugby in college and was selected to play on a regional collegiate team that traveled to France and Switzerland to play in the summer of 1991. Wow. That's depressing. I never realized till right now that it was 20 years ago.
So, Ali's karate is coming along nicely. Super cute. She really enjoys her school as well. She's a happy kid. We are so blessed. Every single day, she just amazes and cracks us up. Mommy and daddy go to karate together with Ali and watch her beam with excitement. She is just so happy. It's nice to have so much happiness. I think it is safe to say we've all earned it.
